Are your kids interested in history? Do they like to learn about people and events of the past? Do they like to pretend to be those people or live in that time period? Then the multi-county 4-H Living History program might be for your kids. This is an excellent program for home school youth or public schooled children, who are ages seven and older, to explore their heritage, community, and expand their knowledge of local history.
The program is a four part series where youth will 1) explore living history, 2) choose a person or time period they are interested in, 3) research and learn about that person or era, and 4) participate in a Living History Fair where youth will share what they have learned with others.
Cornell Cooperative Extensions 4-H Youth Development program will be facilitating this 4 part series starting on Tuesday, January 8, at 6:30 pm at the Hudson Falls Public Library (tentative). The second session will be held Tuesday, January 22, 6:30 pm at the Hudson Falls Public Library. The Third & Fourth Session will be determined at a later date. Please contact John Bowe, 4-H Team Leader for more information 518-623-3291 or 668-4881.
